This was the standard remote control for my old Samsung 5500 Series TV. I noticed that it also controls my newer Samsung 8000 Series TV, so I bought a second one, because it is much easier and more intuitive than the original remote (which is smaller and has just a few keys to control on-screen options/menus like a mouse, i.e. a slow and less precise control) that came with Samsung 8000 Series. It works right out of the box without any changes or programming. Shipment was fast.
